The Global Forum for Food and Agriculture (GFFA) is an international conference on central issues of vital importance for global agricultural and food policies. It is held in Berlin on an annual basis at the same time as the International Green Week (IGW). The GFFA is hosted by the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) in cooperation with the Berlin Senate, Messe Berlin GmbH and the GFFA Berlin e.V..
The three-day forum features a large number of events that provide an international audience of experts from the worlds of politics, business, science and civil society with an opportunity to address and reach consensus on issues and challenges relating to global agricultural policy and food security.
The key topic of GFFA each year is discussed in depth in numerous panels and forums.
A kick-off event introduces the GFFA subject and thus lays the foundation for the various expert discussions held over the following days. The key element of the kick-off event is a facilitated panel discussion.
The kick-off event marks the official start of the GFFA events that will take place from 16 to 18 January 2020. Under the title “Food for all! Trade for Secure, Diverse and Sustainable Nutrition.”, an introduction to this year’s subject will be given and its manifold facets will be highlighted. MORE DETAILS.
